Astros' Lee Still Mulling Over Potential Trade

CHICAGO (July 1, 2012) -- Houston Astros first baseman Carlos Lee remains undecided on whether he will accept a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Lee says he doesn't know when a decision will be finalized. After Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs, Lee said he would talk it over with his wife and "probably" have a decision by Sunday.

The veteran slugger, who is in the final year of a six-year, $100 million contract, has a limited no-trade clause, which means he has to approve a deal. He is in Houston's lineup for Sunday's game at Wrigley Field, batting third.

The 36-year-old Lee is hitting .285 with five homers and 29 RBIs this season.

Second baseman Jose Altuve returned to Houston's lineup Sunday. He had been sidelined since June 24 with a right hamstring injury.
